Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S IV on March 14th

While not really announcing or launching anything major at Mobile World Congress, Samsung has just managed to make everyone pay attention to them. The company just announced their next Galaxy S IV phone would be launching on the 14th of March, confirming earlier rumors.

The company announced the upcoming event on Twitter, releasing the picture above. The reveal of the new phone is one of the most important events in upcoming months due to Samsung's domination of the Android space. The upcoming Galaxy S IV will also go head to head with Apple's iPhone 5 and their upcoming iPhone 5S or iPhone 6.

The biggest rumors relating to the new phone are about a brand new 1080p display as well as a custom made 8-core Exynos processor. According to these same rumors the Galaxy S IV will first launch in Europe and then come to the US afterwards, similar to the Galaxy S III launch. However that is still just speculation and the truth along with further details will be revealed at the event.

The GS4 will go head ot head with the iPhone 5? Please! No it won't. That is what the GS3 and GN2 are for and both blasted the iPhone 5 to a point it took until the 4th quarter for APple to finally get past the GS3 sales numbers.

The GS4 will make the iPhone 5 just get on bended knee and beg for mercy. The iPhone 5S? haha...thats a laugh. Just like the GS3 did to the iPhone 5, it will be a relic before the first one gets boxed for shipment. Apple is so far behind that they arent even worth placing in th same class as Samsung. No innovation, no new design...rmor shows the 5S will look exactly like and be the same size as the 5. Apple an't even innovate their own phone.

See what happens when Apple has no one to copy? See what happens when you dont have company's like Sonty suggesting a design? See what happens when the truth actually comes out? Apple is dead. Apple has the only device that runs iOS, yet they cant even manage to have a market bigger or equal to Samsung who has to compete against several otherOEM's. Same with Apple and the MAc. They are the only ones with a PC that natively runs iOS, yet they can even beat Lenovo...lol.

Samsung is a huge company, but the Koreans need to step up their game in the Mobile department, I want innovation not just spec updates. I'm not defending Apple either, they lack innovation right now too, but I'm hoping Samsung really has something special.

OMG THE SGS4 omg omg omg, I want I want (iWant) the greatest, innovative device in the world ever...
I'm going to have to go sell my house, my wife, my kids and parts of my anatomy so I can go buy it
Oh darn... Tied into a 2 year contract on my s3, waaaaaaaaa

Isn't that the funny part? Many people just went out and got a GSIII or a Note2, what does Samsung want them to do, sell the old phone and just buy this at full unsubsidized prices? ... Don't answer that.

The s3 has been out for a while now. Why is it necessary for people to have the latest and greatest?

Also if someone did just go out and get this phone, then its their fault for doing so, especially since this has long been rumored to be the date for the S4.

I do agree with you, that it isn't especially necessary to an end user to have the latest and greatest, other than bragging rights, I can live without the S4 but that's because of many factors, only some of which are the contract, yes I hate the 2 year contracts that are being pushed onto consumers, and my launch day I9300 is still amazingly fasy for all things I use it for, (in all honesty a lesser smartphone, even entry level would suffice in my particular case, so to confess I only bought mine for the bragging rights) But I can also concede that without these advanced devices being pushed out, tech advancements and evolution would slow to a crawl.
Ok if this sounds like a rant I apologise, it was not my intention.

My Wish list for Galaxy S4:

Better battery life
Removable battery
4GB RAM
Higher quality phone cover


Why the **** do you need 4GB ram on your phone?

Funny that, considering my Galaxy Nexus running 4.2.2 with a dual core runs perfectly fine. Sure I get the occasional small 'lag' but I've seen an iPhone 5 suffer the same issues!

2GB RAM ought to be enough for anybody. -BajiRav, 25 February 2013

uh..thanks for equating me to bill gates but why avoid the question instead of answering it?

My wish for the Galaxy S IV: Android finally stops lagging with an octo-core CPU.
What Android phone have you used that you consider laggy? Bec yes I have apps themselves thayt are laggy bec the devs that make them do such a hideous job. But the OS it self? NO LAG WHATSOEVER. In fact I havent seen any since Android 2.2 on a 1GHz HTC Incredible.

What you are experiencing isnt lag. The problem is the phone is so fast, the lag is only in your mind.

You didn't see any lag on 2.3? I guess I must have been holding HTC Vivid, Samsung Captivate, RandomDroid wrong.

Exactly the reason why lots of people trolling their Android phone has better spec and more powerful processors compared to the iPhone. It doesn't matter if it's "faster" but laggier

I'm using both iOS and Android (iPhone 5 and GALAXY Note 2) so I'm not an iSheep (disclaimer)

I guess you must have. Because i've seen 2.2 and 2.3 devices operate without lag.

Man this two-horse race is really sad. I wish Joe Public had a smidgen of tech knowledge, to open up the market instead of just "following" others

Well i'm pretty sure it will be a bigger improvement than the iToy 5. This thing will likely have have an 8 core CPU, a significant GPU improvement, and a 1080p screen which may be OLED based like previous Galaxy S devices. Theres no 1080p OLED screens in phones yet.

Well I'm pretty sure you are going to be disappointed. Snapdragon 600 is apparently incoming for S4.

uh-huh, look, i'm no longer impressed by higher-resolution screens and moar processor power. Those are to be expected. It's no big deal.

I agree. great screens are expected now, and every version better have a faster processor, and better camera.

Impress me with amazing battery life, ingenious tactile feedback, or something new that has not been done yet.

Wait, wut? How would that be possible, thought Apple themselves had done *everything* there is to do to/with a phone... (except maybe make one self-levitate)
